The Liberty Ship JOHN W. BROWN
on
September 9. 2017

Built in Baltimore and launched from Bethlehem-Fairfield on Labor Day September 7, 1942

Spend an exciting day in 1944 as you experience a sea and air adventure aboard our restored Liberty ship. Plenty of food, era-relevant entertainers, and an air show with vintage World War II aircraft (weather permitting) await you!

The ship is open for you to visit. View the magnificent 140-ton triple-expansion steam engine as it powers the great ship through the water. Tour museum spaces, crew quarters, bridge, flying bridge, chart room, radio room, mess rooms, troop berthing areas, stern gun deck and much more.

To order tickets, scroll down to "Last Living History Cruise of 2017."

**********************

Unfortunately, the ship is temporarily closed.

Due to being temporarily berthed at a secured pier, we are unable to have walk-on visitors to the ship.   This should be through the summer.  Stay tuned for more details.

For questions, email us at john.w.brown@usa.net or call our Reservation Service and leave a message:  410-558-0164.  We will get back to as soon as possible. 

 What is the S.S. JOHN W. BROWN?

Welcome aboard S.S. JOHN W. BROWN, one of only two remaining, fully operational Liberty ships that participated in World War II. This wonderful piece of history provides an educational and historical opportunity for the public to experience 1944 all over again, without the dangers of being sunk by a submarine or a torpedo bomber!

Through the efforts of talented and dedicated volunteers, coupled with the generous financial support of members and friends, S.S. JOHN W. BROWN continues to educate by operating as a historic museum ship, furnishing visitors with a unique opportunity to experience "living history" of the World War II merchant marine.

2017 is our 75th Anniversary; pretty amazing for a ship that was built quickly and was considered 'paid for' if it made one voyage (across the ocean and back).   To read more about the history of the ship, click here or the ABOUT tab above.
